After High School TWU BS 1960
Additional medical trainning with certifications .
Is There Anything You Would Do Different If You Were Going To Repeat High School? I would do just about everything over. I wish I could redo my high school years knowing the things I know now. Education is vital as well as facinating.
Special Friends At NDHS Had a friend that had a younger sister also at ND.
One day the sister told me she was running away during school and marry her boyfriend. I thought about this for some time then went to the office and called her mother who later let them marry. I don't think it worked out.

|(Perry) Biberdorf, Roberta||
1205 Aransas Drive
|09/22/01 - My husband, David V. Biberdorf, have been married 42 years as of January 16, 2001. We have four children, one daughter and three sons. All except one son are married and have children. We have twelve grandchildren. Five grandsons, seven granddaughters. The oldest just turned 21 on July 13, and the youngest turned 4 March 20th. Since the middle son is not married as of yet, there is a significant other, there may be more grandchildren in our future. If I had known how much fun they were I would have had them first. Ha! I made my children my career. I was fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom. It wasn't always easy, and there have been many bumps in the road of life but I am glad I was able to be at home with my children since being a mom was all I ever wanted to do, when I was growing up. I took a few college courses along the way and really enjoyed them but I think I have a total of 21 hours completed over the course of several years. At present I have an insurance license but I haven't worked at insurance for several months. I may do more with insurance at some time in the future. I am semi-retired now and doing very little these days. Just taking it easy and traveling as the opportunity presents itself. My husband retired from General Motors in 1995 after 30 years at the Arlington plant. He also worked security for Texas Stadium for 18 years. One of the reasons I could be a stay at home mom was because he was always working. For 18 years he worked the Cowboy home game every Thanksgiving. A lot of the time I felt like a widow. Just another football widow, I guess. My best friend at NDHS was Gail Wilson. Gail married Jimmy Taylor right out of high school and they had two boys. Gail was a type 1 diabetic from about 6 years of age and I guess she really lived a long life for someone who was that bad, but she died on December 21, 1978, just 3 days short of her 40th birthday. Although we didn't live close to each other we remained in contact over the years and her death was a great loss to me. She almost lived to see her boys grown up. They were teenagers when she died. When my oldest son was in junior high school I discovered that the secretary at his school was a girl I had been friends with in elementary school. Also a North Dallas graduate. She was Coleen Lanier when she was at North Dallas and she married the service man she was writing to during her senior year, Jack Hill. They live in Euless too, and when her mom and dad retired they bought the house across the street from me. Her dad died a few years ago but her mother still lives there. I hated school. I was brought up in a deeply religious home and my parents were the age of other children's grandparents. Because of that strict upbringing and my older parents I seemed to be viewed as weird by my peers. This attitude often made me the object of ridicule which in turn made me hate going to school. I think I have gotten past that and would now be able to enjoy the friendship of some of the people I went to school with. I have found one old friend, Lois Brooks on Classmates.com but I don't want to pay for the whatever membership just to be able to contact her. I would enjoy hearing from you, if you would like to exchange email with me.|

(Stern) Losey, Pat
4551 Westway Ave.
Highland Park, Texas 75205
|After NDHS, Pat attended SMU, University. of Colorado, and received an MAI Designation (Member Appraisal Institute) in real estate. She worked for Braniff Airways and American Airlines from 1958 to 1965. Afterwards, she entered the world of real estate and after an apprenticeship with two commercial and industrial brokerage firms, formed Pat Losey Realtors in 1969. She can thankfully report that she was extremely lucky in this field, and retired in 1992. She is now trying to hide from real estate maintenance after she fell for her own hype and bought too many of her own listings. When she can escape, she loves to travel in her shinny new house on wheels (RV) (Of course taking all of her necessary gear along!). She loves snow skiing, scuba diving and RVing! Her most significant influence at NDHS came from "Minnie" Roberts, Cam Murray Owen and Tennis! If she had it to do over, she would be born rich and go to Highland Park High.|
